ATHEIST Frontman 'Letting Go' Of Collection Of Original Paintings

ATHEIST frontman Kelly Shaefer has issued the following update:

"My very good friend in Los Angeles, Benjie Gordon, who has been a big supporter of my art, and music, suggested to me that I start 'letting go' of some of my collection of paintings that I have done in the last few years, and was kind enough to take the time to hold this special auction on eBay for me. So if you're interested in bidding, or maybe know of a collector of rock/pop art, share the links."

Added Kelly: "Beauty and interest in 'art' is a very specific thing. What some people see as simple, others see as brilliant, and what others see as perfection, others see as flawed. So in short form, this is for me, a medium not unlike music for me, and as music that I have created has stood the test of time, I would be humbled to see my paintings have the same destiny."

In January 2006, Kelly Shaefer reassembled much of what was widely considered ATHEIST's classic recording lineup (Shaefer, bassist Tony Choy, and drummer Steven Flynn) to perform a select number of one-off shows to celebrate the re-issue of their wildly-influential catalog (1988's "Piece of Time", 1993's "Elements", and the 1991's legendary "Unquestionable Presence"). Among those shows were performances at such legendary festivals such as Germany's Wacken Open Air, Norway's Hole In The Sky, Italy's Evolution, England's Bloodstock Open Air, and the Los Angeles' Murderfest.
